Appearances

Overview

"Domino Effect" was the first Ozma song to have a music video made for it, and it is a favorite of Ozma fans. The song seamlessly flows into the next track "Apple Trees". An acoustic medley of the song can be heard at the end of the song "Battlescars," which is also on Rock and Roll Part Three. The song's first four measures of the chorus were originally improvised in a Commuter Music demo.

Rivers Cuomo

Weezer lead singer Rivers Cuomo chose "Domino Effect" as the first song on his iTunes picks. Cuomo called the song "Ozma beating me at my own game."

Music video

The music video for Domino Effect uses the radio edit of the song with a shorter drum solo at the begining.

Lyrics

Chances last a finite time,
In the warm July nighttime.
Every care that keeps you from your feet,
Is a care that carries your defeat.

You better let 'er rip tonight,
With a pocket full of kryptonite.
Every care that keeps you in your seat,
Is a care that carries your defeat.

Sing that song you sang long ago.
A heartbeat, so sure and slow.
Hold me, and don't let go.
The fourteenth domino.

Twenty thousand points of light.
Sun by day, disco ball by night.
Every care that keeps you from the beat,
Is a care that carries your defeat.

Sing that song that I used to know.
The fourteenth black domino.
Hold me, like long ago.
A heartbeat, sure and slow.

Chances last a finite time,
In the warm July nighttime.
Every care that keeps you from your feet,
Is a care that carries your defeat.

Chances last a finite time, and you're running out of time
